I'm running OS X 10.3.9 I have 1.5Ghz g4 laptop and 1.5gb of ram. I have had it for a little over a year. Certain programs are freezing my computer for a few seconds before the application quits. The first one that I noticed this with is Yahoo instant messenger(version 2.5.3). This is a program I need to use for a job. I can log on and set up a buddy list fine, but when I try to instant message someone, the window pops up and then quickly freezes. After about 3 seconds the program forces a quit. Can someone help me resolve this problem? I have tried deleting it and re installing it a few times but it always has the same result. Also One that just started happening to me last week, was windows media player stopped working. When I open up a movie, the media screen pops up and quickly freezes and quits Gah! What should I do? And now when I try to instal it, the installer does the same thing!! Someone plese give me advise! Thanks.
